Watch Facebook Live on Banning Declaw

Dr. Robin Downing is Boarded animal rehabilitation, and is a renown expert on pain/pain management of companion animals and is a clinical bioethicist. She is adamantly opposed to declaw. We are speaking together at the FETCH Veterinary conference in San Diego on December 13 about why declaw is a VERY bad idea. Watch Dr. Downing…

Adopting a Shelter Cat

People are adopting cats from shelters and rescues in record numbers. According to the ASPCA over 1.6 million cats and kittens annually. Further evidence is the Million Cat Challenge. The Million Cat Challenge was originally launched to save the lives of one million shelter cats in North America. Exceeding all expectations, the more than 1,500…

Luna Coyote May be Dying

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) and others involved clearly don’t care about lives. And, so far, the IDNR seems impervious to public outrage and even questions from public officials. Might this actually take Governor J.B. Pritzker stepping in to save Luna? There was no reason – except perhaps that animal rescuer Tomi Tranchita…

WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World

HEAR my Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show on WGN.  I comment on the WGN Walk of Fame, and the inductees: How my first newscaster when I was on WGN Saturday night was Andrea Darlas, just how insightful “King John” Williams is as an interviewer and WGN’s Marlene Wells, who works behind-the-scenes. I tell the…

Chris Walkowicz: Legendary Dog Writer, Breeder and Judge Passes Away

“Why wouldn’t you sit in he first row?” said dog book writer, and Bearded Collie breeder Chris Walkowicz. “That way everyone in back of you can see the dog show.” Chris was kidding me about my vertical impairment. She was a statuesque 6-feet tall, and I am about 5-feet and 7 inches (on a good…

Banfield Pet Hospital Tackling Suicide Among Veterinary Professionals

Suicide among veterinary professionals, as I just wrote about, is over-represented among all professionals, including medical professionals. Here’s a press release describing what Banfield Pet Hospital announced at their Pet Healthcare Industry Summit in Portland, OR, which I just attended. And this issue relates to me, as I’ve lost several friends, in particular, Dr. Sophia…

Where There is Water, There is Leptospirosis

One of the lesser known and hidden dangers of hurricanes and tropical storms is a water-borne bacterial infection, called leptospirosis which can be deadly to people, dogs and other animals. It’s very likely people, dogs, and other animals will die as a result of leptospirosis in the Bahamas as a byproduct of flooding following Hurricane…

Remembering the Dog Heroes of September 11

Cowards were responsible for the unprovoked attacks on America on September 11, 2001. Heroes responded to those attacks. Among the heroes, at least 400 search-and-rescue dogs and their human handlers, who worked onsite at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania, where United Airlines flight 93 crashed. Those heroes with four legs are…

Illinois Department of Natural Resources, Drunk with Power: Responsible for Three Coyote Deaths

I realize coyotes aren’t pets, and so does Tomi Tranchita, and you can listen HERE to her second appearance on my WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World  to talk about her orphaned coyotes which she’s had care for since they were pups 13-years ago.. They were sick at pups, but Tomi cared for them and they…
